Zoo Zero - 'Zoo Zero'

Album Info

  • Release Date: September 30, 2013
  • Label: Crest Cont
8 / 10 London-based quartet Zoo Zero boast an impeccable set of influences: not only is their name taken from an obscure (and borderline unwatchable) Klaus Kinski movie, but their musical reference points include such august types as Can, Kraftwerk and Mission Of Burma. Thankfully this doesn’t translate into something that aims over your head, and this debut relies more on brevity and brio than on ponderous passages of vorsprung durch motorik. The likes of ‘Moon Communique’ and ‘Show Me Your Flag’ are as visceral as they are cerebral, and the band’s
ear for melody is evident throughout.
